Upper Valley Rowing Foundation

COVID-19 Policy – Effective July 2021

The following Covid-19 protocol for Upper Valley Rowing Foundation members is set up to ensure the safety of all our members and to mitigate the spread of the Covid-19 virus.

ALL members choosing to row in a UVRF boat OTHER than a single, must be fully vaccinated.  A fully vaccinated person is one who is 14 days out from either their 2nd dose of a two-dose vaccine regimen or the single dose Johnson & Johnson vaccine.

Those who have had the Covid-19 virus and have recovered are NOT considered vaccinated and should refrain from rowing anything other than a single until fully vaccinated.

Documentation of vaccination will be required for anyone rowing in a UVRF team boat (2x, 2-, 4x, 4-, 4+, 8). Send an email to with a scan of your vaccination card or to request alternative options for verification.

When you are at Kendal Riverfront Park:

  • Continue to adhere to social distancing and cleansing of hands.
  • The Town of Hanover has paused its mask mandate but anyone who chooses to mask is encouraged to do so.
  • Wipe down UVRF oars and boats before returning them to the rack.
  • Do not row if you are sick or have been in close contact with someone who has Covid-19.

There will be no exceptions to the vaccination policy.  Lifting the mask mandate does not lift the requirement that if you are rowing in a UVRF team boat, you still must show proof of vaccination.
